Surrounded by Colour

It's been a while since I've featured a Scandinavian home on the blog. When I came across the Swedish home of Klara Ripa and her family, I was drawn in by the vibrant colours and creative touches throughout. Klara shares more of her creativity on her blog Pippivogel.

Simple paper shapes sewn on to string and strung across the ceiling make a happy display.

A cabinet once covered in wallpaper has been stripped bare by the kids. This is something I'm all too familiar with - my twins used to tear strips off their walls, as two year olds, instead of taking their afternoon naps - grrrr!

Why have standard drawer handles when you can string beads across instead?!

Not even the bathroom gets away untouched. Self adhesive vinyl is cut to fit a row of tiles.

Obviously no one takes themselves too seriously in this family, it looks like a pretty fun place to live. To see even more colour, pop over to Dos Family.


  1. Beautiful and full of colour!!!

  2. What a fun, cheerful home! Love the blue rug and art. The dining area is really cute - I love how they've painted the radiator bright yellow! x

  3. Wow! There are so many things to love about this place - the little dining area and the living room rug immediately caught my eye but beaded string pulls on the drawers? Pure genius!

  4. It's great that they've kept true to Swedish interiors with the white backdrop but have completely infused the spaces with burst of colours. I also love the personal touches, like the the creative door pull. This home is so full of fun personal touches.

  5. Wow Vic, What a find. Love the handles of those drawers. Love the art work. Love it all especially that it still has a vintage vibe about it. x


It's lovely to hear from you. Thanks for your comment. Best wishes, Vic xxx
